Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, has equaled the club’s legend Xavi Hernandez’s record for the most appearances for the Blaugrana.
This was made known by Barcelona in a post via its website on Monday.
This record was achieved after Messi featured in Barcelona’s LaLiga 4-1 win over Huesca last night.
The match was Messi’s 767th appearance for Barcelona in all competitions so far. Xavi also featured 767 times for Barca before he left the LaLiga giants in 2015.
Meanwhile, a brace from Messi and a strike from Antoine Griezmann and Oscar Mingueza gave Ronald Koeman’s men all three points against Huesca at Camp Nou.
The win over Huesca means Barcelona are now in the second position on the LaLiga table, with 59 points from 27 games.
The Catalan club are four points behind league leaders, Atletico Madrid.
